Campbell River Save-On-Foods second Island location to sell B.C. wines

Customers in Campbell River now have the convenience of picking up a high-quality, locally-made bottle of wine to complement their meal while shopping for groceries at Save-On-Foods.

The opening of the Campbell River location is the second Save-On-Foods location on the Island and the 18th location in B.C. to sell made-in-B.C. wine since the province began allowing grocery stores to apply for B.C. VQA licences in 2015.

Located at 400 – 1400 Dogwood Street, Save-On-Foods officially opened its wine department at 11 a.m. on Friday, May 11 and carries more than 1,100 varieties of 100-per-cent British Columbian wine from more than 160 wineries.

“At Save-On-Foods, we are thrilled to offer our customers the opportunity to pick up a bottle of local B.C. wine while shopping for their groceries,” said Darrell Jones, president of Save-On-Foods. “Partnering with the B.C. Wine Institute to introduce people to fantastic locally-made wine is part of our ongoing commitment to supporting local suppliers in our province.”
